Winter is the best time for you to begin your laser hair removal treatments if you want to look good in your bikini, shorts, skirts, and summer dresses this coming summer. Why do you need to begin the process now? Here are a few reasons.

  • Laser hair removal works better when there is a contrast – Therefore, you will get the best results when you are at your palest and the sun has not had the chance to lighten the color of your hair.

  • You don’t want sun exposure right before or after treatment – This is easier in the wintertime when there are fewer sunny days and you are more likely to have the areas you want treated covered up anyway.

  • It takes time – You can’t get all the hairs in one session, and you need a few weeks to a month between treatments. Depending on your skin and hair, it may take a number of treatments to reach the desired results. Therefore, you will want to begin your treatments about six months ahead of time to ensure you get the optimal results before you want to put your bikini on for the first time. That makes winter the optimal start time.

While almost any hair color and skin tone combination can give laser hair removal a try, remember that the laser relies on the color contrast for accuracy, so the closer your hair color and skin tone are to each other, the more treatments you will need to get the same results.Someone whose skin has gone pale in winter and whose hair is at its darkest may be able to get away with fewer treatments – which will also reduce the overall cost of the hair removal process. Is important to remember that blonde and white hair are not candidates because the laser has no pigment to pick up on.
